Following the success of their last live-action princess movie, Enchanted, Disney has begun work on Tink, a non-animated film based around Peter Pan’s tiny sidekick. Elizabeth Banks is attached to play the pixie. Banks also helped to develop the movie along with Max Handelman who helps run the actress’s production company. The project has followed development exec. Matt Smith from Wonderland Productions to its current home at Offspring.
The script is being co-written by Elizabeth Wright Shapiro and the mono-named McG. McG is a terrible director, but maybe with his role limited to co-writer/producer, his damage will be minimized. According to Variety, the concept for the film is too “play with the mischievous nature of the Tinkerbell character,” which sounds to me like there will be a fair amount of self-parody, much like Enchanted.
In addition to taking on the title role on Tink, Banks can also be seen in The Details with Tobey Macguire, The Next Three Days with Russell Crowe, and will continue to appear on 30 Rock.
